SpaceX is now targeting Friday at 9 a.m. EST for launch of the NROL-108 mission from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center on Cape Canaveral.

The launch was put into a hold Thursday at T-00:45 and the decision was later made to delay it to Friday.

There is a three-hour launch window opening Friday at 9 a.m. EST, or 14:00 UTC.

Falcon 9’s first stage booster previously supported launch of SpaceX’s 19th and 20th cargo resupply missions to the International Space Station, a Starlink mission, and the SAOCOM 1B mission.

Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on Landing Zone 1 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.
